8pm - TNT – NBA: Cavs at Bulls - Oooh the intriguing storyline of Ben Wallace back in Chicago...Who am I kidding, you wanna see something like this.

9pm - ESPN – NCAA Basketball: #5 North Carolina at Virginia - There's no way UNC can start conference play with three straight losses, right?

9pm - ESPN2 - High School Basketball: South Atlanta at LeFlore - Derrick Favors of South Florida is the top recruit and he just committed to Georgia Tech. So, is he worth checking out? You decide:

10:30pm – NBA: TNT - Suns at Nuggets - Shaq has been playing great recently. It will be interesting to see if he'll be able to keep that up in the thin air in Denver.

Non-sports pick - 8pm - History Channel - Valkyrie: The Plot to Kill Hitler - Because if you see this you won't have to see the movie. Great story, not a great movie.
